Best Magic Weapon? Crafting Spoilers

Punisher Axe, +1 to hit, +2d6 extra piercing damage (But you have to use your one Slavestone. I prefer to use that for Empress Garb.)

Souldrinker Dagger, +1 to hit, +2d4 psychic damage

Stormbow, +1 to hit, +1d10 lightning damage

Lightbringer (longbow or 2H sword), +1 to hit, +1d8 radiant damage

Dragonblade (need the elusive primed longsword), +0 to hit, +2d6 fire (If it was +1 to hit and any damage type but fire, it'd be so much better.)

Black Viper (rapier), +1 to hit, 2d6+1 necrotic 

Medusa Shortbow, +1 to hit, +1d8 poison damage

Great Axe of Sharpness, +2 to hit, +1d10+2 extra lightning damage

Or do you prefer one of the others? Bear's Claw, Wardenblade, Frostburn, Whiteburn, or Morningstar of Power?

My Pally used a 2H, initially Lightbringer Greatsword, then Great Axe of Sharpness. Fewer options for a dual wielder. My ranger switched between Lightbringer longbow, and then Whiteburn SS plus Frostburn dagger (switching to Souldrinker dagger at end as primary and Whiteburn as offhand). Dwarven cleric used Bear's Claw for the most part. Black Viper is great for a dex-based single weapon type. Or if you go ambidex feat, use Black Viper and Punisher!

I have the option to craft a warden blade. Is it any good? Don't want to waste materials and time if it isn't worth it. Thx

Yes. The Wardenblade adds +1 to hit and damage, +1 to armor class and grants one casting of Guardian Spirits per rest. 

Guardian Spirits is a third level cleric spell and is one of the most effective spells of any kind in the game.

Lightbringer also has a shortsword version that can be dual wielded without Ambidextrous, since it is Light and Finessable to boot. Lightbringer Shortsword: +1 to hit, +1d8 radiant.



Typos happen. More so on the phone.

Slightly off topic, did anyone found the Greatsword of Sharpness crafting receipe ?

I saw the sword itself mentionned in a few wikis (stats are supposed to be +2 hit / +1d10 lightning damage) but when it comes to the receipe I can't find any info (I checked and Circe doens not sell it).

Thx !

Try checking with the merchant that appears in the Manacalan Ruins. She has a great deal of weapon and armor recipes.

I don't believe that Circe stocks either Greatsword or Greataxe crafting books.

And you can make two of them for dual wielding. I used these for most the game before getting Black Viper and Soul Drinker to replace them

She sells the carfting receipe for the Greataxe of Sharpness actually. Just not the Greatsword. Unless there's some kind of randomness in her item table but I doubt it.

I'm starting to think this receipe simply doesn't exist.

I found both the recipe for the Greataxe of Sharpness and the primed greataxe to go with it, along with a primed greatsword and about four other crafting recipes in the crate by the boat on the Monastary/Apostasy map.

Yes I know perfectly the crate you're talking about.

Unfortunately there wasn't the recipe for the Greatsword of Sharpness. Only the one for the GreatAxe. At least in my playthrough.

Apologies, I misread your message, I thought you were having trouble finding the Greataxe of Sharpness recipe, I had no idea Geatsword of Sharpness even existed in the game having never seen it mentioned anywhere but your message.   Perhaps you can answer a question for me, is Stardust readily available in the game? I'm loathe to start crafting the Lightbringer Greatsword as I also want the Lightbringer Bow and if there's only one Stardust I think I'll save it for the bow.

One is. You get it early on as a reward for the "Sorak Relic" bounty board quest. 

You can also get it as randomized loot. I was able to get a second one in my playthrough. You'll just have to pray to RNGesus.

I didn't get one as reward for the "Sorak Relic" quest, I got the Ring of the Lightbringers for that. The one Stardust I got was from the chest in the ravine on the first stop on Kythaela's route to Coparann.

[Edit]

I did get a second Stardust as reward for rescuing the Baron.

I have ALWAYS got one for rescuing the Baron (ok, well, 4 out of 4 times).

Do they have any thing like a +1d6 (Or is that +1d10?) Defender Sword?


R*A*N*G*E*R If it has walked these lands, I can track it. If it hasn't, I will find it anyway.
